    • American Vachetta: Wickett & Craig's natural 'American Vachetta' leather was originally developed with a special mix of compounds and modeled after the European style Vachetta. What makes Vachetta leather so special is the patina it develops with use. Aging to a caramel color, the American Vachetta will quickly burnish to a rich patina. Another factor that typically sets Vachetta leather apart is its softer temper and rounder hand when compared to the Wickett natural carving leather.
    • American Vachetta vs Natural Carving:
      • Vachetta has a softer temper (less stiff)
      • Vachetta will patina to a caramel color, while natural carving will become more of a pink.
    • This is a natural untreated leather and so is made to take on dye and oil exceptionally well so that you can create your desired finish.
    • Used by crafters looking to stamp, mold, dye, finish and customize their leather for belts, bags, high-end leather goods and accessories, equestrian gear, and much more.
    • The back is natural and unfinished with a clean flat back.
